When I was learning Turkish, I discovered a useful word. People use this word a lot and it fills the sentences perfectly.
After I learned this word, I used it all the time. And I mean ALL the time. I couldn’t say a short sentence without using this word.
It’s a normal part of learning: discovering a phrase that works, then using it all the time.
The next step is to learn alternatives for different useful phrases. Then you start sounding more like a native speaker and you’ll have more fun using them.
Here are some common (technically correct) phrases that sound boring or wrong if you use them too much, and alternative phrases that sound better and add variety and colour to your English.
